The Pagan Book of Halloween is written by a self-proclaimed witch who admits that Halloween is her favorite holiday. Gerina Dunwich's enthusiasm spills onto every page, with fascinating historical tidbits about the symbols, rituals, foods, and superstitions surrounding this spooky yet festive time of year. Most of her entries are brief and offer a pinch of practical magic. For example, she suggests a Rowan Tree Protection Spell to ward off Halloween bewitchment as well as a spell to "prevent drunkenness," so revelers can party all night without losing their wits. Long ago the Scots protected themselves from Halloween "vampires, wicked Witches, demons and all person possessing an evil eye" by hanging garlic around the house. The Irish went with a sweeter scent--a wreath made of dried apples and/or heather to keep away the malevolent half of the fairy population. In the final pages, Dunwich offers recipes for Samhain Cider and other traditional delights. This makes an excellent guidebook for households that want to honor the pagan roots of this ancient holiday. --Gail Hudson

I did though really enjoyed this little book. You can expect to find the following...
Origin of Halloween and Lore, Rituals and Celebrations, Herbs and Omens, Symbols, Superstions, Halloween Divinations, Recipes, and a Pagan Perspective, and more.
I find anything on Samhain delightful and interesting, a very nice additon to my Ravenwolf book.
I love her choice of covers, using a John Wm Waterhouse painting once again. She has a nice thorough Bibliography which I love to scan for more sources for my own library.
Not a bad investment
